So I'm looking to make an online portfolio site with for my marketing copywriting. I've signed up for wordpress.com and have a theme I found, Portfolio Press, that'd I like to use.
Now I know that the free WordPress.com site won't let you install a theme that isn't in their list of 120 free themes or whatever.
What steps do I have to take in order to install this theme? I'm not very web-savvy. If I pay to have a custom domain from Go-daddy.com to point to my WordPress.com site and used WordPress.com to host my files, what steps should I take to be able to use this custom theme that I've found?
I've tried looking into this on my own but I'm hopeless... It's all so confusing, every new direction brings me further and further into areas that I don't understand.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
